STRING 9.05 
MSX1 [ENSP00000372170]
 
msh homeobox 1; Acts as a transcriptional repressor. May play a role in limb-pattern formation. Acts in cranofacial development and specifically in odontogenesis. Expression in the developing nail bed mesenchyme is important for nail plate thickness and integrity
MSX2 [ENSP00000239243]
 
msh homeobox 2; Probable morphogenetic role. May play a role in limb- pattern formation. In osteoblasts, suppresses transcription driven by the osteocalcin FGF response element (OCFRE)
